Oatmeal Surprise Cookies

Darci Juris


These are no ordinary oatmeal cookie. They actually have a little protein in them, and are made with brown rice flour for some added health value. But don't let that scare you, because these are still full of scrumptious flavor. Each cookie surprises you with a pop of cranberry, sweetness of a raisin, and chocolate in every bite.
